On hole 2 at my local course I was throwing a big hyzer. I took too wide of a step and (freeballing of course) clapped my nuts between my legs :shock: . It put me down for 5 minutes. I know it's not as severe as a sharp stick in the ear, but ask me at the time and I'd take the stick. What's worse is a group approaching hole 2 said they heard the clap from 50 feet away.

EDIT:Temp was 105, heat index was 115, and 100% humidity. My drive was great tho..

I hit the back of my hand on the trunk of a tree while throwing a full power upshot. I parked it right by the basket and fractured one of my metacarpals in doing so.

I'm another victim of the dreaded nuts clapping too :cry: . If it's that hot out, i'll wear my trusty tighty whities.

I bounced my forearm off a tree once recently. I hit the tree very square so I didn't break anything, or even bruise anything for that matter..It did leave my shoulder sore for a week or two however.

I don't know if this has happend to any of you...but:
I was playing up in Northern California...Napa (skyline Park) I just finished throwing my second throw. Started walking to go putt. Some punk ass teenager threw his disc w/o saying anything....I got drilled in the back of the head with a dx eagle. It put me down for a bit...when I came too...i threw that disc into the lake and chased that teenager down...he was lucky he had a 300ft head start on me. I constantly always watch who's behind me now!

Still hasn't happened to me yet. Although it's common to get thrown in on when you're finishing up holes where you can't see the basket from the tee.

I was setting up for a putt out of some woods, and I was standing next to a dead tree. I backed up without looking behind me and got pierced in the back by three branches that I had paid zero attention to. I jumped forward quick enough so that the branches didn't go too deep, but I ruined a brand new under armour shirt and had some nice blood flow for a little bit.

I accidently hit a girl last night at the local course. Thankfully, not off a drive. I threw, hit a tree and kinda fell out and hit her in the back. I apologized and she knew it was because it just took a weird route through the tree.

I still felt really bad.
